Ollivanders™: Makers of Fine Wands since 382 BC
Makers of Fine Wands since 382 B.C., Ollivanders™ is one of the wizarding world's premier wand shops. Surrounded by towering walls of thousands of wand boxes stacked to the ceiling, visitors will be able to witness the magical experience of how a wand chooses a wizard. Here, guests will also be able to purchase their own unique Ollivanders'™ wands, or select one of the many replica wands used by their favorite Harry Potter™ characters.
Practitioners of the Dark Arts know they can find everything they need in Knockturn Alley, a gloomy back street just off Diagon Alley™. Those brave enough to wander down this dark, narrow alleyway will encounter a variety of shops and storefronts showcasing objects associated with Dark Magic. Here, you will be able to visit Borgin and Burkes where you will find shelves lined with items such as Death Eater masks, skulls, and other sinister objects.
The sound of the whistle blowing signals that it's time for you to take a journey on the Hogwarts™ Express. Guests can climb aboard and travel between King's Cross Station (located at Universal Studios Florida) and Hogsmeade™ Station (located at Universal's Islands of Adventure), enjoying a unique experience along each leg of the journey as you travel between the two locations. Once aboard, you will see views of London and the British countryside outside the train windows, while encountering different characters and creatures from the Harry Potter™ films.
While exploring the streets of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley, guests will be able to enjoy the following shows:
- The Singing Sorceress
: Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees, a musical performance featuring the ever-popular singing sensation of the wizarding world, known from the books as Molly Weasley's favorite singer, who she listens to on the Wizarding Wireless Network. The swinging show will feature never-before heard songs including, "A Cauldron Full Of Hot, Strong Love," "You Stole My Cauldron But You Can't Have My Heart" and "You Charmed The Heart Right Out Of Me". These titles were all created by J.K. Rowling and the lyrics also include never-before-revealed information on Celestina's wand from Pottermore.
There will also be various interactive opportunities for guests to enjoy while visiting London and Diagon Alley:
- The Knight Bus
, which provides emergency transport for the stranded witch or wizard in the Harry Potter books and films, is located in the London area of the new land. Guests will be able to meet and chat to the Knight Bus Conductor, and witness his rapport with the shrunken head hanging from the rear-view mirror. The iconic three-story, purple Knight Bus was inspired by its first appearance in the third film, "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban."
- Gringotts Money Exchange
, a place where guests will be able to interact with a Gringotts bank goblin and exchange their Muggle currency for Wizarding Bank Notes. These bank notes can be used within both Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade (and throughout the rest of Universal's two theme parks) to purchase snacks and items from the shops.
: Makers of Fine Wands since 382 BC, one of the wizarding world's premier wand shops.
